I need external storage for my laptop. I am trying to get 2TB of storage after redundancy. I would like to get the fastest access times possible. My laptop has usb and firewire, and a pc card slot, so i could add sata.
what is the best arangement for this? raid 1+0, 5, 6? also is there a single unit that you recommend, or should i get a specific enclosure and also a bunch of drives
I would like the whole thing to cost less than 1,000 dollars
i would like the device to have usb and or firewire in addition to esata or sata
size and power are not issues
